Our visit started with a video explaining who John Dickerson was and his influence on American history. After a short walk up to the house, we had an amazing tour. Our tour guide just loves his job and it really showed. He greeted us on the front steps in period costume and showed us though the house explaining the Dickerson family history and talking about all the people that lived there. He took time to answer everyone's questions and even took extra time with our tour because it was not too busy. A lovely experience! A very important part of the history of Delaware and the United States. And it was totally free!

Excellent historic location. Very convenient location. Definitely worth an hour. Some of the grounds are overgrown and delapadated but everything that's actually historic is super well preserved. They do a good job dealing with the uncomfortable bits of the history, and overall, it's just a great place to visit

Nice public park that includes an old plantation house and auxillary buildings. There is a visitors center, nice facilities, and knowledgable docents.

Our 4th grade class visited recently and we had a lot of fun with their Make a Splash program.

A gentleman who gave the tour, whose name escapes me, was incredibly knowledgeable about the site and patiently took photos of me for me upon request. An underrated nugget of a Delaware tourist attraction.
